Uninsured motorists are everywhere on the streets and highways of Northern California — along with drivers who carry some liability coverage, but not nearly enough to cover the harm done in a serious accident. When such a driver causes a crash, it is essential to work with an experienced San Francisco car accident lawyer who will pursue all sources of recovery for you.
Our respected personal injury law firm has been helping injured drivers, passengers, motorcyclists, bicyclists and pedestrians maximize the compensation they receive after serious accidents since 1983. You can turn to us for a complete evaluation of your potential legal claim, including identification of all types of insurance coverage that apply after a motor vehicle accident involving an uninsured or underinsured motorist.
Will Your Own Insurance Cover Medical Expenses and Other Costs?
Many people seriously hurt by uninsured and underinsured drivers have some recourse via their own insurance policies. Important considerations in your car, motorcycle, bicycle or pedestrian accident case may include:
- Whether you have uninsured/underinsured (UM/UI) motorist coverage as part of your own auto insurance policy, and the policy limits that apply
- Whether, as is often the case, your auto policy covers the type of accident that injured you — as a passenger with someone else driving, when driving a rental car, or as an injured motorcyclist, bicyclist or pedestrian injured because of another driver's negligence, for example
Whether other important circumstances apply, such as the involvement of a drunk driver , potentially enabling a claim against a bar, restaurant or other party for violating dram shop/liquor liability laws
Cutting Through Complexity and Targeting All Available Compensation for You
Auto insurance laws and the language in policies are both complex, and negotiations or litigation can be especially challenging in an uninsured/underinsured motorist case. We are personable, straight-talking attorney who will go the distance to help you get the money you need to deal with the aftermath of a serious accident.
